Communication is Paramount

When I visited the Geneva Auto Show, I was impressed by two things concerning autonomous cars: most of the concept cars use communication with lights; front, rear, and sometimes side. And this communication with lights uses different shapes, colours, signs, messages, and luminances.

After several lectures at DVN workshops and news articles on AVs we've already published, after the info picked up at IAA and now in Geneva, I am convinced that communication by external lights will be more and more important. I am excited to know the latest results and findings by universities and companies in America, Europe, and Asia.
The DVN Tokyo workshop this coming June will dedicate a big part of the event to this point with the theme of Advanced Technologies, Communication, and Regulation with five topics:

  • Advanced lighting and signaling
  • HD Headlamps
  • Communication with environment, pedestrians, drivers, infrastructure.
  • Interaction with regulation
  • Advanced development tools

Registration is available online, and we expect space will fill up very quickly.

Sincerely yours


DVN President
